ESSEENTIAL ACCESSORIES PART II- JEWELRY

According to Rachel Zoe, one of the most high-profile stylists in the game, accessories are everything.  The term “accessories” covers the broadest spectrum of different elements in a woman’s wardrobe other than items of clothing:  shoes, handbags, jewelry (faux or real), belts, scarves and hats all fall under the same umbrella.

Well, I’ve previously talked about shoes and handbags and now is the time to talk about jewelry.   I find that wearing the right accessories can make or break a look.  They are also a perfect key on how to update your wardrobe without buying new clothes. You can wear the same outfit but in most cases you can easily make it look and feel different by simply changing your accessories. 
Surely, who wouldn’t want to own a jewelry box full of pearls, diamonds and the like.  These accessories will never look dated.  We all know that nothing makes an outfit look more elegant then a string of pearls and let’s face it, diamonds are girls’ best friend but that does not mean that you can’t look your best without them.  All you need is a couple of eye-catching necklaces and scarves that will not only transform a plain top into a smart outfit and make you stand out of the crowd but also will speak of your taste and personality.

Having good accessories will double up your wardrobe and let you mix high and low, always looking effortlessly stylish and well dressed.  What’s great about most accessories isthat they don’t look dated the way most clothes do after a while.

Apart from shoes and handbags, the right jewelry is the next best thing to give your outfit a finished look.  I am always on the lookout for an interesting necklace, a pair of over-sized earrings or a beautifully printed scarf.  Sometimes I am just attracted by the colour but more often I look for pieces that tell a story, have interesting textures or are made of unusual material – something with which I can associate myself.

I always joke that if you want to distract people from looking at your face, in case you don't look your best- put on a bright chunky necklace or a pair of rare earrings.

However, always wear your best accessories and look fabulous.
